Dr. Caroline C. Piotrowski - Biography

Dr. Caroline Piotrowski earned her Bachelor and Master’s degrees in developmental psychology from the University of Waterloo, her PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from the Pennsylvania State University, and her MPH in Health Promotion from San Diego State University. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences, a Scientist at Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba and Director of the Violence and Injury Prevention Research Group at the University of Manitoba. Her areas of expertise include sibling relationships, violence and injury prevention, and trauma and resilience in children and youth. She is particularly interested in the promotion of safety, including trauma- and violence-informed care.

Twenty Years Later: This UMSSHRC-funded project is currently underway. We are looking for men and women between the ages of 20 and 40 years who participated in a University of Manitoba research study from 1996-2000 when they were a child, along with their mother and one of their brothers or sisters. Some families came to the University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus to participate in the study, but other families participated at local agencies who allowed us to use their space, including the Elizabeth Hill Counselling Centre, Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre (when their office was on Broadway) and the Family Centre (now known as New Directions).

Could this be you? If you are not sure, please contact us! Your mother or your sibling might also help you to remember. We are providing those who come back and answer some questions about how they are doing twenty years later with a gift card to thank them for their time.
If you think you might be one of the people we are looking for, please contact us:
